There is something special and, yes, magical about anything Disney, especially for children. Whether your daughter loves Minnie, Elsa, Ariel or another famous princess, she likely spends a lot of time pretending to be a Disney character or acting out her favorite scenes from the movies. This creative play helps foster an active imagination in young children. Boys may identify with different characters, but they benefit from pretend play as well. When it’s time to rest for a meal or snack, Disney mugs are the perfect way to entice them to the table.
Pretend play is about more than just fun. Children actually learn through imaginative amusement. Ample time to create scenarios and try out new characters will help your child become both emotionally and socially well-rounded. In addition to helping tiny tots improve language skills, role-playing helps kids understand the power of their own words. As he reenacts a familiar story, your son comes to see and realize why some words are hurtful and others are kind.
Empathy is fostered when kids are allowed to roam freely through pretend situations. These games can actually help children practice their responses, prepare them for real-life situations and deal with hard challenges, such as bullying.
Don’t worry if your toddler seems obsessed with a single character or your five-year-old refuses to wear anything unless it looks like it came straight out of Cinderella. Children’s interest can be very focused, but fixations rarely last long enough to be cause for concern.
Provide your child with plenty of space, either in a playroom or their own bedroom, to explore new ideas, try on outlandish costumes and even roughhouse a bit. Turn your childrens artwork into gifts that they'll absolutely love. A well-stocked dress-up collection and a few realistic props, such as play dishes and building blocks, are all most kids need to entertain themselves for hours. Be sure to snap a few photos and preserve these precious years with a photo book that you can enjoy when she heads off to college.
